Successful and Steady Development over 150 Years

One hundred and fifty years ago Domaine Blouin covered no more than 4 hectares. Today the winery has 25 hectares yielding a total of 60,000 bottles of red, white, rosé and sweet wines every year. The estate is in Saint Aubin de de Luigné in northwest France, to the southwest of Angers. The business is a family affair, supplemented by extra workers at harvest time. They employ a different approach depending on the wine type. They handpick for red and sparkling wines, hand sort for sweet wines, and use machines for the white grapes.

The Grape Varieties of Domaine Blouin

Domaine Blouin winery makes red and white wines in the generic Anjou appellation as well as Anjou Villages. It makes rosés in the Cabernet d’Anjou and Rosé de Loire appellations. The grapes that winemakers used for rosés are Grolleau, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines display the typical berry and rose aromas and a light, refreshing taste.

The Vinification Process at Domaine Blouin

A 100% Chenin blanc sparkling wine is made in Crémant de Loire appellation, grown on slate-clay soil. The Domaine makes sweet white wines in four appellations. They are Coteaux de Layon, Coteaux de Layon Saint-Aubin, Coteaux de Layon Beaulieu, and Coteaux de Layon Premier Cru Chaume. They use only Chenin blanc grapes for these sweet wines which they allow to over-ripen. Then they sort the grapes 3 or 4 times and process each selection individually before blending. There is a dedication to the art of fine winemaking as revealed through numerous successes in the prestigious Ligers, Independents Vignerons and Mâcon competitions.
